Configuring DHCP Address Reservation

When you specify a reserved IP address for a device on the LAN (based on the MAC address of the device), that computer or device will always receive the same IP address each time it accesses the VPN firewall's DHCP server. Reserved IP addresses should be assigned to servers or access points that require permanent IP address settings. The Reserved IP address that you select must be outside of the DHCP Server pool.

To reserve an IP address, manually enter the device in the LAN Groups tab, specifying Reserved (DHCP Client), as described in Configuring DHCP Address Reservation.

Note: The reserved address will not be assigned until the next time the PC contacts the VPN firewall's DHCP server. Reboot the PC or access its IP configuration and force a DHCP release and renew.
